This week in Frame Yourself, we’re talking about the best frame for round faces. As we’ve discussed, there are plenty other shapes than just the typical square and oval, and knowing your true shape is important to help you find the perfect designer glasses for you. Round faces do not have many angles, and you generally have equal length and width, with full cheeks. Some great examples of celebrities with round faces include Christina Ricci, Kirsten Dunst, and Elijah Wood.
Christina Ricci knows how to thing big when it comes to buying the perfect pair of designer sunglasses. With round faces, large and upswept styles bring the focus to all the right places. For a style similar to Christina’s, with oversized lenses and a slight cat-eye, try a pair of MYKITA Luna sunglasses, which are available in the above Taupe, Black, Tobago, Blue Pearl, Amethyst, and Garnet.
In this photo, Kirsten Dunst wears a pair of narrow, short eyeglasses with a rectangular silhouette, which are flattering because they help lengthen the face and thin it out a bit. CHANEL eyeglasses in 2118HB are a similar style to the one Kirsten wears, with silver metal rims, a straight bridge, and wide black arms that slope into a curve over the ear.
Elijah Wood is a great example of how geometric frames can help flatter a round face. The extra angles help sharpen your soft features, bringing a good balance to your appearance. A similar style to Elijah’s is by Vue dc eyewear, knows as GUS. It is a glossy plastic in black with three silver dot accents on each side. It is aso available in Tortoise, or in Black with Red arms.
